How to Remove a Maytag Dishwasher Rack

Save

Maytag dishwasher racks can become rusty or the wheels may require replacing from time to time. When this happens, it is necessary to remove the racks to make repairs or to replace them completely. Removing a Maytag dishwasher rack is a simple process and requires only one tool. Replacement rollers and racks are available at appliance repair centers and from Sears. This is also an ideal time to inspect the spray arm assembly and clean the bottom filter, since you have full access to the interior of the machine.

Things You'll Need

  • Flat-head screwdriver
  • Open the dishwasher door and pull the bottom dish rack straight out of the dishwasher. The bottom rack simply rolls on a ledge on the bottom.

  • Locate the caps on the end of the rail over which the upper rack glides. The rail acts much like a drawer glide. Pry each cap cover open with a flat-head screwdriver.

  • Grasp the end cap covers with your fingers and pull the end caps off the rails. The end caps are plastic and fit on the inside of the rail, preventing the dish rack rollers from coming out during normal operation.

  • Grab the upper rack by its sides and pull it out of the dishwasher. Push the rails back inside the dishwasher if they extend while removing the rack.

Tips & Warnings

  • Reverse the removal process to reinstall the dishwasher racks.
